Exclamation Tell me what you think :) Id love to hear all what u think good or bad.

Okay so I posted these pics in another forum on here and didnt get many replies, maybe everyone was havinga busy day or just didnt want to post stuff cause i posted in "pictures" Anyway I wanted to put it out here, Klassy has now been in solid training with my dressage trainer who is doing wonderful things for both of us. Its only been three months but seems like so so much longer! We have worked through so many problems, and gotten her to balance so much better and she is starting to hold herself up when I ride her. We are really comming along.

So I would love to know what you think of Klassy. Conformation wise, training wise. How much would you pay for her if she were for sale? What do you think she would excell most in.

Here is some info on her.

Turning 4 this month, has been under saddle since May 2009 Has a solid trot both ways, starting to really use her bodey and gettinga solid canter. Great with transtions. UTD on all vac. Has front shoes. Loads/hauls like a dream. Gets along wth all other horses. Does fine in a stall or feild turnout. Can go witha two week break and come back ready to work. Not your typical young TB who can lose its head. Not spooky and not marish. Standing at 15.1 with lots more growing! Has free jumped 3'6 and cleanerd with much ease. Doing training level 1 dressage work now.Will make a great dressage mount to someone who wants to go really far, or a great eventer as she is extremly bold and loves to go and jump.

Anyways I might be having to sell her or lease her out (perf. to a training barn) cause College costs so much.

SO here are some pictures. not the best but most recent.

Beautiful horse, I think that if you keep continuing her training, you can go far with her! It's hard to judge from the pictures, but she looks like she has pretty correct conformation, although there's something a little off about her front hocks, I just can't put my finger on it....might just be me!

It's hard to say too much without actually meeting her or at least seeing a video, but from what I can see and what you've said about her, I'd probably pay somewhere around $7000 for her, possibly more.

I cant fault your position at all! and your horse looks lovely too, you could really do something with her, dressage especially, eventing maybe if she jumps :)

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

She's very nice, but not outstanding. I would take her as a good solid all rounder. She has a very typical TB conformation, she'd be able to jump a bit, dressage a bit etc. If she's as quiet as you say, a very good PC mount. In Aus she would go for maybe AU$2000, TB's are a dime a dozen here.

I loove how she moves. She looks very fluid. If i had the money i would pay (considering how i like her) around 5,500 to 6,000. Im in love :) Seems to be a great all a rounder :)

The top photo is lovely.

I have a couple of minor quibbles. I would try to drop your stirrup a hole or two and really stretch your leg down and around her. You're riding at a good all purpose length, but as you start working more in a full seat, you may find that a longer stirrup may help.

Shorten your reins so your hand is in front of the wither when not actively giving an aid, and put more bend and weight in your elbow. Pay attention to the straight line between elbow and bit; in the photo your hand has dropped slightly. The position and contact you have in this photo sacrificing effectiveness for softness. Now that your mare is accepting contact and working correctly; you can ask her to work into a firm feel.

Thank you everyone!
Maura- Thank you, I have been playing around with my sturrups, as I havea bad knee injury so it cramps up if I have the sturrup much longer, Im trying to work it slowly further down. But I do agree that the length can be longer to help me sit deeper in the saddle and help her. For my arms, well thats when I feel all over the place with her I feel when I shorten my rains she doenst like it and tends to throw tantrums, and will flat out stop somtimes and throw a fit. but it has been getting better rently. My trainer does have to nag nag nag on me in lessons about that! haha Itsa work in progress, but I am working slowly on it as she is so young. But I really want to thank you for your honesty.
I will have more pics here soon. I hope to somehow manange a video or tow someoday on here as well! THANK YOU EVERYONE

Feel free to keep tellin me what you think!
